Jim Black Residency @ The Stone 25-30  

An expertise in abstract designs gives the drummer Jim Black a refreshingly wayward approach to trad time-keeping, but the raucous pummeling and florid crashes that he’s honed into a personal lingo over the last two decades provide his outfits with a sage physicality – it’s not impossible to see him as a Keith Moon of jazz improv.

This week’s stretch of shows finds him in duets with percussionist Ches Smith, a trumpet hook up with Peter Evans, a threesome that features pianist Teddy Klausner, and TONIGHT’S return of the long gone bloodcount, the revered ‘90s quartet that includes Tim Berne, Chris Speed and Mike Formanek. Caprice is a bedrock element of the entire program.

8 pm + 10 pm   $10.  The Stone, corner of Avenue C and 2nd Street.
